parentnet: add dst_cache support (diff)
net: replace dst_cache ip6_tunnel implementation with the generic one
This also fix a potential race into the existing tunnel code, which could lead to the wrong dst to be permanenty cached: CPU1: CPU2: <xmit on ip6_tunnel> <cache lookup fails> dst = ip6_route_output(...) <tunnel params are changed via nl> dst_cache_reset() // no effect, // the cache is empty dst_cache_set() // the wrong dst // is permanenty stored // into the cache With the new dst implementation the above race is not possible since the first cache lookup after dst_cache_reset will fail due to the timestamp check Signed-off-by: Paolo Abeni <pabeni@redhat.com> Suggested-and-acked-by: Hannes Frederic Sowa <hannes@stressinduktion.org> Signed-off-by: David S.
